i woudl say that for 15k you should be able to get a low mileage 98 - 00 Type R V5 or 6, even a V-limited. Check out one of the top importers, i wont say names online, however PM me and i will tell you the ones i have seen offering good deals.

There seem to be a lot around for between 14 and 15k, if you get one fresh from the importers, i would say you are probably going to get a bargain.

i would be happy to help you out if you want to contact me.

Im selling because basicly ive got a few small debts i want to pay off, nothing too major but enough to bug me when they go out my wages once a month. Wipe the slate clean and all that then put my feet up in my rocking chair, pipe and carpet slippers

Chriss, the head unit was in it when i got the car, it has a wave expander fitted so it works in the u.k. I didnt know they had a double din as standard.
The headunit is Kenwood and must be aftermarket.
